So I make fan signs
for people. They are custom made and take a lot of time. This particular client
was being stubborn about the price I offered.
Me: OK, so the
total is going to be $60 for what you ordered.
that’s so expensive!
Me: I told you
what my prices were when we started.
Client: Come on
can’t you give me a discount? I have 5K followers and I can advertise for you
Me: I already
have a deal with someone else to advertise for me. You can get a discount if
you buy 3 or more items.
Client: But I
already spent all the money I had on the last fan sign I bought from you!
Me: Then I’m
sorry I really can’t help you.
Client: Come on I
won’t tell anybody if you give it to me for free
Me: For free? I
never give anything away for free. These things are custom made and they take
me a lot of time to do.
Client: Please, babe?
The client then tried
to flirt with me to try and get me to give it to him for free or discounted. He
then gave up and refused to talk to me about the sign he wanted. I’ll give him
one thing, he was persistent. I won’t give him anything else, though.
